ABOUT THE NJDEP PESTICIDE LICENSING PROGRAM
The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) Pesticide Control Program (PCP) regulations contain information on the training requirements for new (never licensed) commercial applicators and/or operators, as well as the requirements for currently licensed persons and those who have not maintained their license. Under these regulations, a new commercial applicator or operator must attend a PCP-approved basic pesticide training course (such as Core, which is described below) and complete forty (40) hours of on-the-job training in the functions and operations associated with the category of license the individual is seeking to obtain. Recertification of a currently-licensed New Jersey commercial pesticide applicator/ operator is maintained by completing recertification courses in both Core (eight units) and the category being recertified for (sixteen units) within a five-year period.

The Rutgers/NJAES Office of Continuing Professional Education's (OCPE) Core Training Program is the first step in training for individuals interested in becoming a licensed New Jersey pest control operator and/or applicator. Topics covered during this online course include:

  • Federal pesticide laws;
  • The New Jersey Pesticide Control Act;
  • What is Integrated Pest Management (IPM)?
  • Pesticide hazards and how to minimize them;
  • Proper handling, storage, and disposal of pesticides; and
  • Types of application equipment and use.

This course satisfies New Jersey's requirement of attending a basic pesticide training course for new applicants seeking to gain a state license.

IMPORTANT: This is NOT the CORE exam. This is an online training course. The CORE exam is offered by the NJDEP. Visit their website for exam application instructions and upcoming exam dates.
